    On my way to an appointment (salesman) the GPS routes the most direct route. This TomTom must know I own a Tacoma. Within 8 miles to my destination I go from paved roads, to dirt roads, to what looks like a sparsely used trail. I stop look around and can’t believe this is the road. Do I turn around, no; I drive a Tacoma so I keep going. Rocks, washouts, an edge of pond crossings and numerous water holes one of which was over my doorsills. The only bad part were some branches that scratched up my truck. All the while wearing suit pants, a shirt and tie and some dress shoes. Yeah it could have been really stupid if I got stuck but I just could not resist. This may sound all too easy for some of you but I have never driven a trail like this in my life and to say the least I was not prepared for it. It was so much fun and scary at the same time. Can’t wait to be able to do this all the time but for now the truck is my daily driver. The guy that I was going to see could not believe I came that way and said that he has pulled stuck trucks out of there before. The actual road in Wales, MA that is not maintained is S. Wales Rd. Off exit 74 in CT on I-84. Should I worry about water in my diff?

    Nice! If it were submerged for a long period I would get it changed, but if it were just some water crossing I'd wait for the 30k mile scheduled change.
    I'm sure others will chime in.

    Sweet! I'm glad it turned out ok. :) I wouldn't worry to much about the diff for now... but it might be a good idea to do the diff breather mod in the future. :p

    Yeah that thing sucks but this time it was an awesome surprise.

    Was just looking at that right now and trying to find parts online.

    You are right but I was not getting out in my suit to take a picture with my phone.

    When you drive through water, that is at or below the door sills, your truck will push the water way, creating a wake. As long as you never stopped in the puddles, you should be fine.

    I did some water crossings where I pushed a wake, above the front bumper, and had no water in my diff. Now I have a breather though.

    Ya wish the door seals worked better though. Wonder if anyone has done any mods for better door seals that can stand up to water.

    I don't know why because virgins don't know what they are doing, stupid religion. Now we are off topic.
